I'm not Jonnie I admit, but being able to boost both sides together too
would sure be nice. My game is still quiet, regardless of skype. By the
way, what you're referring to when you told me about skype making the
volume of other sounds decrease is a feature in win7 that is found in
the sounds control pannel under the communications tab. It allows you to
select whether or how much you want your volume of other sounds to be
decreased when in a VOIP call. I usually have this hp's volume at about
20 percent, but when I play swamp, I put it at 100 percent and use NVDA
to read it instead of JAWS, as NVDA allows you to turn down the speech
volume. I use it at about 20 percent and that's what I was doing with
swamp though I didn't mention it in the review. If I'm not mistaken
Shades of Doom uses the same language and technology as Swamp, and it's
not quiet like that. If I have to, I'm happy to at least be able to turn
it up at all, but it sure is quiet on my end. Also, a cool feature in
win7 is that you can adjust the volume of running programs individually
using the sound mixer aplet, but the sigmotel, IDT audio what ever you
want to call it, in my hp pulls the master volume up when you increase
the volume of something. So the only solution there is to turn master
volume all the way up then bring down everything but swamp. That messes
those other programs up when you're done playing and want to do other
things, though. So My NVDA solution is ;probably the best for now.
Thanks for bringing us this game. I'm pretty hooked on it. I'm happy I'm
at least somewhat good at it. I'm lucky to be able to play anything, and
I'm not half bad at swamp, at least not by my own standards. I'm ready
to record the new lines for my voiceover whenever.
